I signed up again for another 5% weight loss challenge starting Jan 14. The challenge runs for 8 weeks. I find this challenge helps me get back on track and keep from gaining all my weight back. I have been a Spirited Underdog for most of the challenges.

I live in Washington State. I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?
I''m thinking that getting use to being focused on what I eat each day, will make it different this time.

My family includes my husband, 2 Moluccan cockatoos (more trouble than my children were) and a Pomchi .

I have 3 daughters, 2 live in the Seattle WA. area and Silverdale. My Youngest daughter lives here in Port Angeles. and she gave birth 11 months ago to a beautiful baby girl 2/20/16. . I have 4 other grandchildren, ages 23, 18, 6 and 4. My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, rental moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014.

Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing and keeping our weight off!!

    The different way I'm eating is to follow the requirements for the Nineveh 90 Challenge at No eating between meals, no alcohol, no desserts or sweets, no soda or sweetened drinks, 2 days of fasting per week.

    Add to that the required 7 hours of sleep and regular intense exercise.

    And all the prayers and daily mass and holy hours are helping me stay focused on God and not on eating.
